Woke up to racing heart!

This has happened a few times now, I will go to bed absolutely fine, and then out of nowhere I will be woken up to my heart racing! Tight chest and short of breath. I try to calm myself down and take my pulse which is always within 60-100bpm I just don't know what's happening to me :(

I have the same thing every morning. It's been happening for months. As the day goes by it improves. I hate to go to bed at night because I know what to expect when I wake up. I wish I had an explanation for you but I don't understand why that happens either. I pray that it goes away for you.

Is this a common symptom of anxiety? I don't get where this has all came from

Yes it is. Racing heart or palpitations are a common symptom of anxiety. My heart used to race all day until I began meds xx

My chest will randomly get so tight! Like it feels like I cannot breathe! It comes out of nowhere :( I don't want to go on meds, I'm only 27, I have an amazing family and no real life problems I just can't get my head around this being anxiety? It makes no sense to me
